Beta Rev 3 Won't Kick Start Properly
Posted 07 May 2012 - 10:53 AM
I have a beta rev 3, year 2001 i think.
I bought this bike over a year ago and havnt been able to ride it due to transport so its been sat in the shed. Now i have transport ive taken the bike out the once.
But it takes like 30+ kicks or so to start the bike, this is my first bike so maybe my kicking isn't so good, ive had a mate try kicking also and it just wont go.
The more kicks the bike seems to try and start, start and cut out, and then finally will start.
Ive read checking carb jets, spark plugs and air filter could be the issue.
Any help would be great, cheers.

You'll get more response if you post this query in the dark under-world called; the Beta forum.

If its been sat around in a shed for a year, you will have to get rid of the fuel thats in the tank and clean out the carb. put fresh petrol mix in and it will probably be fine.

You could also take the plug out and kick over to clear the barrel.

Not so relevant here but it does clean the innards up a bit.

The KTM runs on neat Carb Cleaner?
It's probably cheaper than petrol
Just in case someone thinks it does - No it doesn't.

1.new stator rewind.
2.new CDI box. witch aren't cheep.
3.new ht lead.
5.new stop button.
and it still will not start any answers or solutions does anyone no the carb setting because i think i might be over fueling if that would stop it from running?.

It could be something as daft as a sticking float which is flooding it.
